I adopted Ava in September 2013, and we're still best friends! Apart from her tennis balls, Ava still loves going for runs and car rides. She has travelled all up and down the West Coast with me, and we'll be moving across country to live with her dad in a few weeks (she was happy to adopt him into our family). She maintained some of her weird traits: digging through the trash when I'm not looking and barking at TV dogs. But I wouldn't change any of it.
